Chase Rice Plots Lambs and Lions Tour

“The shows were what kept me going,” says the singer, who persevered through lean career times to record ambitious new album ‘Lambs and Lions’

Three years on from topping the charts with his one-and-done LP for Columbia Nashville, Ignite the Night, Chase Rice is looking to get a fresh start in 2017. That’s meant severing ties with his old label to join forces with Broken Bow Records and, more importantly, distancing himself from the bro-country image that was both his blessing and curse in the changing climate of country music. With a new album, Lambs & Lions, due out later this year, Rice is now making plans to hit the road in fall.

The 30-date Lambs & Lions Tour kicks off September 14th at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, less than a couple hours away from where Rice grew up in Asheville. After touring with Kenny Chesney in 2015, this new tour in a way sees the former Survivor contestant get back to basics, as he’ll focus primarily on playing smaller to mid-size theater gigs and the occasional festival, including the Garden State Country Music Food Truck Fest in Atlantic City on October 1st.

Supporting Rice at different points of the Lambs & Lions Tour, which will also visit the United Kingdom and Ireland in December but skip his adopted home in Nashville, will be Travis Denning, Jacob Davis, Brooke Eden, Filmore, and Sam Riggs. The tour wraps up next February at Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia.

“I didn’t have a clue what I was doing on that record,” Rice told Rolling Stone Country earlier this year, regarding Ignite the Night, which went to Number One on the country charts and scored a top five single in “Ready Set Roll.” “I was just throwing a bunch of stuff on a wall and seeing what stuck. There is some stuff on there that is the same old shit and I’m tired of that. They’re finally going to see the me I want them to see.

Lambs & Lions will be produced by Chris DeStefano, Mac MacAnally, and Jacquire King.
